My camera is digital and i put it on the auto mode and make sure the macro is on, use the macro when you take close detailed photos and try to be steady as possible.

I thought the schrades would make a better backround than just the wall,
one redbone i got at a pawn shop and the second off e-bay

Hi Joe,

Age is relative when it comes to knowledge :thumbup: . You have a semester worth of training, and I have Zero.....so you see my friend...in this case you have knowledge that you can pass on to this old timer...thanks for taking the time.

I'm getting blurred pic's when close up and having lighting issues. To much light that and I get reflection off of the blades; or to little light and the pic is to dark!!!! any an all suggestions are welcome.

Hi Tom,

Funny you should mention the auto setting. The best pic in the bunch I believe was taken on the auto setting :confused: . Oh; what's a macro :rolleyes: don't laugh I really don't know.

John, here's one of the best threads on photographing knives and how to improve your possibilities of getting a good picture.

Hi John...
For me, not that my pics are great, but it's just how I have my settings: I usually put it on "fine" resolution. Turn off the flash, and use AUTO. I avoid "superfine" cause some peeps here don't have fast connections and also, it takes up less space on the camera memory card.

"Macro" ususally means that the image will be larger than the item (closeup). But it varies from mfg as there is no standard.

In my line of work, programming, a "macro" is a set of code that generates more lines of code in detail (a step saver).

Good artical on photo compositionm it will help your photos look better.

a picture i took where i used the rules of thirds and bullseyed nothing.

You want to use the macro(little flower symbol, on my digital you press mode to change the settings) since most cameras are auto. turn on a light close to your subject and turn the flash OFF. use the screen on the back or the peep hole and set up your photo to your liking, breathe out and squeeze the button. i just put a lamp over my subject to light it and dont use the flash since that tends to kill details with a bright spot, dont use flash unless its at night but you wont be taking knife pictures in the dark. and set something behind it such a a table with alot of wood grain feature or something a little more eye catching then a plain color table to carpet as this will help the eye look at the whole photo. Play around with it some. You'll get better. (PS if you did understand something or need more ill try and help, but its hard for me to do this as im not standing next to you showing it, its much like teaching someone to shoot a gun when you cant stand there and show them)

LOL...some of your instructions are sounding like I should be shooting a gun....never thought to exhale and squeez when shooting a camera :D . But, if I miss the mark I wont blow anything away except a picture :rolleyes: .

Thanks for the info....Joe, Marvin, and Preston.

Sorry Tom for jacking your thread.

I never thought about it ebfore i was taught either, but it makes your pics come out alot less blurry. Guess comparing it to a gun is alot easier on my teacher since a majority of the kids here are hunters and its a skill they already have :)

I have this thing called a tripod:eek: that I attach my camera to...so's I can breathe normally and concentrate on taking the picture;) :D ;). Preston
 
As long as the shutter speed is abover 30 i found i didnt need a tripod. Tri-pods are easier though.
